Guthrie, who lives in the Hudson Valley in Dutchess County, took a rapid COVID-19 test while the show was on the air after saying she didn't feel well.
She did not appear again after the 7:30 a.m. hour after testing positive for the third time, NBC News said.
Co-worker Sheinelle Jones, who was sitting beside Guthrie, gave an update to viewers and said on Twitter: "So, as soon as we found out, she rushed home to rest up. So Savannah, we love you, wishing you a speedy recovery."
